Bops in unexpected places [single reviews]

Alaina Cross - "Backstabber": I was told in no uncertain terms by Amber Stoneman at Nashville Unsigned that I NEEDED to listen to this song because it's a "MONSTER hit." Can't say I disagree, Amber. This song was recently featured on CMT's "Music City." Alternative pop on Country Music Television? The ...

Columbus Covers Columbus ’19: The Turbos

Photo credit: Steven Bustos When I think of bands on the rise here in Columbus, there are a few that come to mind. One of those is the pure rock and roll machine known as The Turbos.

They were a fan favorite at CCC '18 with their covers of The Turbos "Circles" and House of Heroes "Lose Control" and the way they ad-libbed certain songs. We caught up with ...

Getting that travel itch… [single reviews]

The experimental dreampop group is rather fittingly from Florida. I say fitting because I can hear bits of both Copeland and Polyenso in their music. ...
